Kid Press Conference with Governor Phil Scott

"Peter Hirschfeld Nice to talk with you. Good to talk with you Jane and I have to tell you I'm so excited to hear what questions the kids are going to have the governor today. Yeah me, too. I hope he's prepared. Can you explain just first of all what a reporter is and generally what a reporter does! We have pretty fun jobs. I have to admit because we spend all day learning about things that are happening in our towns in the state in the country, and even the world sometimes, and then we write stories based on what we've learned so that we can get people information that in some cases might be really important to them. In order to do that job, we have to be kind of like collectors of information. And sometimes we collect that information by reading things like government documents for example sometimes we get information by talking to people like legislators or mayors or the governor, people in our communities or sometimes expert who can help us understand different topics that we might not know that much about sometimes we get information just by going to places and watching things like a select board meeting in a local town or going to the State House to watch committees. They're make big decisions. or maybe going to to something like a protest is to learn more about what people are upset about. We have what we call a representative democracy in the united. States in that means we elect people to Serb government, and they make really important decisions about how our society is going to work and reporters tried to do is get people all the information. They needed so that they can decide whether their government is doing a good job. And sometimes when reporter learns about things that maybe aren't going so well. It allows the people who read their stories to. Ask and demand changes and improvements. Can I highlight one word that you said because I to just make sure we're clear on this, you said reporters write stories. This is not the kind of story that is fiction that is made up or not true. What a reporter does has to be based on fact so when you say you write a story, you're writing something that incorporates what you've heard from other people what you know to be true and what you have found out. You're not making things up, and you're not really sharing your opinion. What's the difference between factual reporting and just telling someone what you think about something? Yeah, that's exactly right Jane, so this isn't the kind of story that you would read in a picture book for example or A novel. That is fiction What reporters are doing? Is discovering facts and information, and then just using those facts in that information in the stories that they right so even though we call them stories or not, the kinds of stories you might find. In! Some of the books you read it school. One way I like to think about it is. There's a big difference between I. Think and what I know and reporters stick to telling people what they know. Bar Job is to give the public facts and information so that they can make their own opinions about things. Get an example of something that's happening right now. Governor Scott, who you're going to be talking to assume wants to make some budget cuts next year because Vermont government doesn't have as much money coming in, but a lot of legislators that work in the state. House, don't WanNa make budget cuts because they say there's going to be a lot of people that have a lot of needs and budget got is when you think you have a certain amount of. Of money to spend, but then actually you're only allowed to spend a little less than that. That's right. You don't have as much money as you thought you were going to have so the job of the reporter in telling that story isn't the tell people who's right or wrong. The governor or the legislature. The reporter's job is to collect as much information as possible about their proposals explain to people what those proposals would do and what they would mean. In then explained the potential consequences of those proposals, but then lead up to other people to decide what they think is the right thing to do.

"governor scott" Discussed on CATS Roundtable

"This morning is one of the smartest guys I know. And we have with this ex-governor from Wisconsin Scott Walker. How how are you governor? I'm super you're one of the smartest people I know in or out of politics. So Burkett Governor. It was an interesting weekend politics especially in democratic politics in twenty four hours to whole world change. Bloomberg fell apart. Everybody else fell off the shelf. Tell us you know politics pretty well especially from the Mid West. Tell us how you see sings Shakya. Yeah this is just amazing. It was one of the most amazing Turnarounds particularly when you think about earned media. Joe Biden didn't have the money Bloomberg Daddy didn't have the organization attorney did but in the end you saw a really the the full force of the Democrat establishment coalesce behind Joe Biden because they were scared to death of Bernie. Sanders is as much as many of them embrace socialism. They didn't want it from a guy who's on record sympathizing with communist dictators Certainly in the past and even in some of his policies now so you saw them clear the lane They got Mayor people to check out and and Senator Amy Klobuchar or out of course. Bloomberg along the way with his two failed debate show. You really couldn't abate his way out of a wet paper bag and that opened the door for a clear contrast between Biden the more pragmatic choice of many older Democrats in the primary voting system. And of course Bernie The democratic socialist who appealed to some of the younger voters out there add in the long tradition. That Joe Biden had of appealing to African American voters. And you can see why not only did well in South Carolina but one big by any measure on Super Tuesday. This is completely turned their their nomination process. Upset out well I mean when we saw each other last week I always had a feeling that the Democratic Party somewhere orange was just gonNA screw sanders but how everything else fell. Plot was unbelievable. And we're really was and and you're right and it's one of those where this is one of the I think missing headlines out there wasn't just that the establishment got behind Biden without a doubt they were worried about losing the White House burning. But I think it's more fundamental wasn't just worries about losing the White House. It was about losing the House that really worried and all the other down ballot you saw and this is I guess. Tested the voters. They didn't just by actually spoke to voters. And voters responded. That there aren't gonNA WE'RE GONNA lose Bernie not at the top. We'RE GONNA lose all the way down in for Democrats who overwhelmingly care about the power structure. What they want is in the twenty twenty Seco-. This is the first time in twenty years. The presidential elections the same time there is a census in they know that whoever's in power at the state local level are the people who are going to set the boundaries even at the congressional level for the next decade. And that's really more than principle more than policy more than politics. This is about power for the Democrats and let's talk about the state in the Senate and Congress are People Gonna Forgive Nancy Pelosi during the vote. Democratic for Congress wedding there is a huge pushback amongst voters and a lot of these swing district and I only in the Mid West but even in Stanton Island for example in New York a New York City Newark. Stater you're and California you look in the Mid West number of seats where Republicans lost twenty eighteen in part because they lost more suburban Type voters now in the twenty twenty psycho all these Democrats who want an eighteen have to stand up and acknowledged that even though they promised they were going to get things done. They promised they re put politics instead. What you've seen is really two years under Pelosi of House. Democrats doing nothing except impeachment and I think in the end. It's why you see Democrats on the run and why you see. President trump getting unprecedented levels of of support in these primaries. Even though he has no real opposition he is getting big numbers. Bigger than Obama did at this stage of in his presence reelection. This is really a good sign. We got to counter that though and know that in the end because of redistricting because of all these boundaries being sick the Democrats are gonNA pull out all the stops. The Supreme Court is Politics Stein to hit that. Well I can't believe that I am. I can't believe it I guess. Sorry as it is but it's it's remarkable if you think back a few years ago. Chuck Schumer Being the the leader the Senate Democrats what he said about two members of the. Us Supreme Core is really unprecedented. I don't think anyone can deny that. That didn't sound like a threat to me. That's why you have three separate branches of government Certainly we can complain about Rulings But that's why you have separate branches and and that's why the judiciary is impartial. We're not elected. They're not at the federal level they're not members of parties there to uphold the constitution and the laws during acted and Regardless of who nominated them in the end. They're doing what they're supposed to do. They should actually be free of threats. But that's really where things have gone. You've gotten so out of control of that. This has become commonplace in and sadly not surprising. Scott Walker what are you doing lately? Well one of the things. We're working on the national. Republican trust the N. R. R. T. DOT. Org is where people can find more and the reason I got involved with two simple words Eric holder. I just mentioned the establishment is can't behind Biden. The reason they did was more than just the White House. It's because they're worried about losing the house and worried about long term What the next decade is going to be like. We're trying to make sure that Eric holder in his allies has grown his Gerrymandered the way into permanent power. We have fair maps. You See New York state but you see it all across the country if we have maps that keep communities of interest attack. We've constitutionally strong and concise districts are candidates can win. We've got better candidates in a better message. We just gotTa make sure they don't gerrymanders out of out of the possibility so you're working hard in that absolutely. Yeah the The N. R. R. T. Dot Org. That's the National Republican district. Trust working on some other things to try to get a bounce budget amendment enacted working with the National Taxpayer's Union and other groups But right now. One of the most critical things we can do is push back against colder. Who's been working on this for years? He Got Barack Obama to put all of his organizing for America. All of his name's funds resources into this redistricting effort. They claim in many many media outlets that the for fair maps that their own group filed with the irs a form that says their purpose their mission is favourably position. Democrats in the redistricting process. That's why they they don't fight redistricting in New York or Massachusetts New Jersey or annoy. They only go to Publican states In the end we gotta push back in a New York state. People can help out with the trust because it's a good way to force them to do. What the voters said. They wanted back in twenty fourteen that has had objective process. And they're not doing it now they haven't done in the past. And that's why we gotta be standing up and fighting back against holder and company President Trump. Your Midwest you weren't Midwest Governor. How do the Mid West farmers and feel about president trump is still supporting him? One hundred percent absolutely. He is unbelievable levels of support. Roy is again. Many of the elite particularly in the Washington bubble somehow think on trade and tariffs that there's backlash With the farming community the opposite is true. They believe that this is a and I joined them in that with. This president is fighting to get fair. Trade deals not only for manufacturers but for farmers we saw with the trade deal with Canada and Mexico under NAFTA dairy farmers not only in Wisconsin Minnesota but even in New York state. We're getting a really getting the raw ended the deal. When it came down Karaoke Canada he held out in that trade. Deal to get a better deal to level the playing field. I think when you see examples like that now what he's doing with China and other parts of the world they know that he's fighting for them and sandwich manufacturing workers. They know that he's fighting hard. This is a guy who keeps his promises. His numbers have gone up since impeachment. Because I think mid Westerners where a lot of these swing states are at midwesterners believe in fairness and they believe that. He's doing what he said he was going to do. At the impeachment is just a partisan witch hunt and Oddly Enough Democrats are going backfire with all they've done to try to attack him independent persuadable. Voters just want people who get the job done. It's why I WanNa Rico with more votes than I did the first time. I think the same thing's going to happen with the President Governor Scott Walker. Thank you for coming onto a show today and God bless you and everything you do for the American people and let's catch up again real soon. Found great keep by for freedom. Thanks man thank you. This is the catch roundtable. We'll be right back..

Wisconsin gov.-elect won't rule out suing over bills that would limit power

"Has happened before in many a legislature Democrats. In fact, I've done this in the past two Republican governors in lane duck sessions and other states joining me now from the state capital of Madison, Wisconsin, incoming democratic governor Tony got elect Devers. Welcome to meet the presser. Running check. How are you today? I'm okay. Let me start with this. You had said you were going to personally lobby governor Scott Walker the outgoing governor whom you defeated to veto this legislation. How those talks gone have you met with them. I communicated with governor Walker over the telephone a few days ago and laid out my physician that vetoing the legislation was going to be an important thing. Not only for you to make sure that our our what happened last November the vote of the people Wisconsin is actually upheld. And we're putting people in front of politics, but also just bad legislation. And I made that made that pitch and was noncommittal, I know publicly he's said another arenas savvy plans to sign most or all of it. So I'm not particular courage to at this point in time. But it's it's around Scott Walker's legacy. He he has the opportunity to change this and actually validate the will of the people that voted on November six did you negotiate with them? Did you say, you know, what look I know x is really important to you. I get that. But what's with y and z here was there. A why did you go to? And say, look, I I really think this part is just crazy please veto that if you want to keep this. I get it. No, I I talked about a few areas that are really important that actually Republican business leaders have talked about that that would take away power imply implicate and make make economic development much more difficult in the state of Wisconsin. But the entire thing is a mess. It's a hot mess. I believe that. He should be towed. The entire package impact at least three or four the pieces that are in there. Now, he has vetoed previously. And so it makes no sense to me. He's he's been a longtime public servant. And and I and he he he has a legacy here. So we're hopeful that he will veto the whole thing. I'm curious after you were elected and quickly. We heard word that the Republican speaker and the Republican majority leader in the legislature. There were considering these bills. Did you reach out to them personally before the bills started going? And if you did what was that conversation like? Well, I I met with Robert Vaas this speaker much before those words that rumor came down the pike. I haven't had a chance to talk immediate was last minute is one of these. Here's a rumor. And here's here's the bills that have been worked on for several months. But know, Scott, you didn't won this election, which got Walker at one this election. We wouldn't be sitting here talking to you today. Is there any party, you know, one of the things that the speaker said he goes, well and hindsight, maybe we gave the governor too much power take the partisan hat off a minute. All right. I know that that perhaps many people read that comet tongue in cheek. But do you believe he's right? Well, there are things in that Bill that really had nothing to do with giving Scott Walker anything. So I don't agree with that. We have balanced power in the state of Wisconsin legislature in both sides are Republican. I'm a democrat. The attorney general's have democrat. No, I view this as completely different than the, Robin. Boy, you said, and that is that we are trying to invalidate the of the people people Wisconsin voted for because they know that I was for good schools and good transportation system and good healthcare. They didn't they didn't. They didn't elect me to fight over. Administrative powers in the state of Wisconsin vis-a-vis, the Republican majority. Now, I think this this this gets us off to bad start. I I think it's a mistake. But we we'll continue working to get the people Wisconsin to convince Scott Walker to think about his legacy and make sure that he vetos language democratic congresswoman Glenmore said the following the legislatures who injured near this coup their actions amount to a smash and grab hijacking of the voters. Will you think coups the right word here? Well, that's that's always seems seems strong. But the fact of the matter is. As I just said if Walker had won this election, and he did not I did we wouldn't be sitting here. Talking about this today. We wouldn't we wouldn't be talking. It's Scott Walker wouldn't be sitting here talking about. Jeez. They're they're trying to they're trying to balance the power here. So no, I think is directly related to the to a win by a democrat in that be me. And we need we need to have this. We need to have this vetoed. One of their rationale has been well governor like abras margins all came from two cities, Madison and Milwaukee. We have to represent the rest of the state. What do you say to that charge? And more importantly, you want a very narrow election. How do you? How do you reach across this divided state at this point. Like, it would have been a lot easier without this legislation. I'll tell you that I have reached my present job is state superintendent that's a statewide elected position. And I've reached across island all all all numbers of issue. So that's part of my DNA. I'm an educator. So I I always try to find common ground, and I'll continue to do that going forward. This just makes it more difficult. But I wanted me election anyway, you slice it. I want me election and actually narrowed some of the. The votes out state, and I've won lots of those counties out state in the past. I governor I will be the governor of the state. It was represent doesn't veto this legislation. Do you plan to sue you really think you have standards? All all all issues are on the table. I I'm not making any promises one way or the other. But we're looking at all issues all options at the table. I need to stand up for the people Wisconsin. There's two point six million people that voted in this last election, and they expect me to do that. So I'm going to we're going to pursue this governor elect, Tony abors democrat from Wisconsin. Thanks for coming on sharing your views. Good luck. When you take when he actually takes us. All right. When we come back. The one issue

Wisconsin Democrats look at legal options on lame-duck bills

"In order to ram through a series of measures that that basically decapitate the executive branch and give the legislature itself powered over an enormous number of things, whether it's agencies, whether it's making the attorney general come to the legislature, and specifically to a committee with a Republican dominated committee within the legislature. To get permission to pursue lawsuits. Whether it's settlement money potentially in in lawsuits, that's all controlled by the legislature now and then limiting early voting which is very significant because Wisconsin had record turnout in two thousand eighteen and because of early voting which the legislature had tried to cut off and then a federal judge intervened and said, no it's unconstitutional. There were enormous numbers. Wisconsin citizens who voted early and the legislature is now in both houses have passed this that they need to get together on it. But they have limited early voting to two weeks. So instead of six weeks as it was here in Dane county, where we had presidential level turn out. They're going to have two weeks. Again. It's just an effort to suppress the will of the people and to concentrate power in the state legislature. Well in terms of the limits on the governor's appointment powers. Could you get some? Go into some of the specifics of what is actually happening with some of these agencies some of them, they're actually packing with more members that the legislation would have say over. Yes. So for example, the Wisconsin economic Development Corporation, which has replaced the Commerce Department under governor Scott Walker. It's a scandal. Played agency that hands out gifts to corporations that promise to create jobs. The legislature has taken away the governor's power to appoint the head of that agency. They're still working this out. It's still needs to be signed by Scott Walker. But this is where they're going. And there was debate on it as they walked into the studio, they they plan to pack the board so that until September. And this is the recent redo this as a four o'clock this morning, they plan to pack the board with Republican chosen members. So that the governor can appoint the head of the board anymore and the Republican legislature controls the makeup of the board after September. They say it will be balanced there'll be chosen by legislators from the Democratic Party and the Republican party. But they are what they are fundamentally doing is undoing Tony Everts campaign promise to get rid of this agency altogether because it is. Handed out tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money to corporations that have failed to create jobs. I was Foxconn as well. The ex-con Foxconn, which is a big. Yeah. It's a big company that our state has given an enormous amount of subsidy money to and really is was a major issue in the campaign because it's a gigantic subsidy for this corporation that is not creating a lot of jobs and hiring people actually from Illinois. To make big split screens. I will probably be obsolete shortly. There are a number of corporations that have received tens of millions of dollars from the state of Wisconsin. In this Bill that the legislature is pushing through right now, they remove the requirement that those corporations even demonstrate that they're creating jobs that was a requirement that they were failing to meet, and it's the reason that the public is. So so up in arms against this Wisconsin, Economic Development Board, it's going to continue to exist. The Republicans are going to pack the board. And now they're gonna take away the requirement that the corporations they give money to taxpayer money to even show that they're doing anything in exchange for that money, Foxconn Welby be the reason why the governor of Wisconsin stop Scott Walker lost. I mean, the touting of Foxconn coming to Wisconsin.

"Alluded to the president's tweets a couple of times in his speech. It's a complicated thing Jerry Brown. What he's saying is absolutely true. Climate change is a huge factor in in these fires that we're now seeing become pretty regular in lots of the west. President Trump continues to kind of harp on the need to change the way we manage. Our forests critics argue that he's just arguing for more logging or basically placating to some of the. Constituency has in California's central valley where water is a big issue. The reality is fire. Colleges would say, yeah. Look, we need to probably look at forest management a little different given the reality in which we're living in right now but logging thinning is not the solution in every place. It certainly wouldn't have done anything to affect the fire down here in southern California where it was mostly burning in an urban area. That's NPR's Nathan rot who is covering.

"Trump to be held without bail. While he awaits trial Caesar Sayaka, Florida resident who frequently praised President Trump while threatening his opponents on social media is accused of sending bombs to the Obamas. The Clinton's former vice president Joe Biden next CIA director John Brennan, congress members, Maxine Waters, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, liberal activists, Tom Steiner, and George Soros, actor Robert deniro and CNN's main office building in Manhattan at the supreme court. Newly seeded Justice Brett Kavanagh appeared receptive Tuesday to the arguments of a condemn Missouri prisoner who says he's likely to experience extreme. Pain if he subjected to a lethal injection Russell buck Lou was scheduled to be executed last March before the high court agreed to hear his appeal. His attorneys argued at the supreme court, Tuesday, Buckley's rare medical condition could prevent a lethal injection drug from circulating properly through his veins likely leading to a death so agonizing it would violate the constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment. The supreme court split four two four earlier this year on whether to allow the execution to proceed meaning Justice Cavanaugh will likely cast the deciding vote in the case, and in Wisconsin, where Republican governor Scott Walker was defeated on Tuesday in his bid for a third term an office. The high tech manufacturer Foxconn says seeking to bring in workers from China to help run the factory under construction near the city of Racine. Governor Walker back to plan with the support of house speaker Paul Ryan and President Trump to. Died three billion dollars in tax credits to Foxconn claiming the taxpayer money would provide thousands of new jobs while renovating Wisconsin's economy, but Foxconn has scaled back its plans now saying it'll hire just three thousand workers in the short term, most of them and engineering positions rather than the thirteen thousand Matthew facturing jobs governor Walker had promised and the size of the tax payer subsidy has steadily increased to four point one billion dollars during two terms office. Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.

"A president but his unwillingness to talk even a little bit about guns and the the gun violence that exists in this country even rhetorically uh says that he's not prepared to take up this challenge on that side he talked about mental health there there are legitimate important issues on the mental health side that that need to be dealt with as well this is not a either or situation uh but he in a sense has cast his lot on one side of that and not the other and i think that that reflects that in a sense that the great cultural divide on this issue i mean this this issue has severely divided this country and as long as we are as divided as we are politically and culturally it's very difficult to see a way forward to try to get any action on just one last scattered aten on florida in particular that one person who's really in a bad spot are difficult fat is governor scott because he those are his constituents who demanding action and he wants to run for the senate and he was gonna make the decision about running for the senate at the end of the legislative session so a lot of important things are all coming together at the same time for the governor and that's gonna make his every decision he makes have much bigger means got a key player but what about president trump again because he is in some way as so ideological on some issues but on others he's very nonideological and he reads this new you're in the post in the past he had supported an assault weapons ban and you know this is sort of the new york trump history that comes out where he is said that uh you know there could be some compromise there but i just don't see it happening now he has you know he's thrown his lot in with the nra they became a really important group to him and he they were one.
